Featured in this video

Release date

August 20, 2014


In this preview from the ART21 Art in the Twenty-First Century Season 7 episode, Fiction, artist Joan Jonas conducts a rehearsal for a reconfigured version of her early performance work, Mirror Piece I (1969), at Kulturhuset in Stockholm, Sweden. Having no previous experience in performance before transitioning to the field in the 1960s, the artist reflects upon taking workshops with choreographers such as Trisha Brown, Yvonne Rainer, and Steve Paxton. "Maybe just one or two classes with some of them," recalls the artist, "to learn now to move and to be in public."

Season 7 of Art in the Twenty-First Century premieres Friday, October 24, 2014 at 10:00 p.m. ET on PBS (check local listings). Fiction airs Friday, November 14, 2014.
